Why Does My Vape Pop?
If you've recently turned to vaping, you've probably wondered why your vape gadget is making popping and spitting noises.
As it turns out, this is a rather common event among e-cigarette users, but it isn't anything you should dismiss.
Those popping sounds can be irritating, and they usually indicate that your device has some underlying troubles.
Read on to discover more about this vape popping phenomenon, including some of the causes and what you can do to prevent it.
What Are the Causes of Vape Popping?
Let's start with some of the most typical causes of vape popping. There are a variety of reasons why your e-cigarette or pen may be making these sounds, so keep an open mind and investigate the various causes before attempting to repair your device.
Set the wattage
Tanks come in a variety of shapes and sizes in vape pens. The e-liquid or juice of your choice is stored in these tanks. Tanks come in a variety of sizes and shapes, and they may or may not be the cause of your device's popping.
If you're using a sub-ohm tank device, the popping and spitting could be caused by your wattage. Wattage settings are delicate, and you may need to tweak them more often than you think. A popping sound can be caused by a low wattage setting because the device is not heating up at the proper rate, allowing the e-liquid to bubble and pop rather than vaporise.
The good news is that low wattage is a simple problem to solve! All you have to do is turn the device's dial till the popping sound stops. If the noise persists, it could be something else.
You're Vaping E-Liquid
There are a plethora of e-liquid flavours to pick from. It's no surprise that some of them can trigger vape popping.
When you use the gadget, the e-liquid stored in the tank is vaporised. The formulation of e-liquids is not uniform, and there are inconsistencies. Thinner e-liquids can cause interference with the coils found in most devices. When the coils are obstructed, you may hear a crackling sound.
Changing your e-liquid is an easy way to get rid of the popping sound. You'll be able to discover something you like — without the popping — with a little trial and error.
The Coil is a fictional character.
A coil is included with every vape pen. These coils are one of the components that make up the atomiser. The atomiser is the heating element that works to vaporise the e-liquid, so it is not unusual to have some crackling or popping sounds.
However, too much of that cracking sound can mean that there is something wrong with the coil. Twisted or braided coils can sometimes cause an increase in these popping noises.
Since these specific coils have a larger build than a traditional one, there is more opportunity for the airflow and vapours to create a sound.
These atomisers can be made of any coil type, so if you notice a lot of these cracking noises, you may want to consider getting a new or different coil for your vaping device.
Note: To resolve any issues with your device, you should be aware of the components that are inside of it. For example, knowing the type of coil, the atomiser component, and the e-liquid can help you diagnose the issue at hand.
The drip tip or chimney may also be the cause of popping noises. There are a couple of reasons as to why the chimney may be at fault.
For starters, we must acknowledge that there are many different vape devices on the market, and with many different builds. The components that make up devices vary, so this is not necessarily going to be a cure-all for your situation.
When you are vaping, there is an exchange of airflow that moves through the device's chimney. If the area is too small or constricted, there is a good chance that the juice and condensation can build up. This build-up may lead to that spitting sound that you are working to stop.
Again, many different devices have differing chimney sizes. If this seems to be the issue, you can always try a vape pen with a larger chimney.
This is one of the easier ways to open up the airflow and it will usually stop, or at least significantly reduce the severity of the popping noise.
The drip tip can also be responsible for some of these sounds. Since the drip tip design is quite different from a traditional model, your best option may be to either change the tip or try a new model altogether.
How to Prevent Vape Popping
E-cigarette devices may be small, but they are relatively complex pieces of technology. Many different components make them work, so there are multiple potential reasons you may be noticing an excessive amount of crackling or popping noises.
When it comes to preventing these noises, our best advice is to take a thorough look at the reasons listed above to see if any of them may apply to your e-cigarette or vape.
It may take some time to narrow down your options, but this is usually the fastest and most cost-effective way to go about fixing this problem.
You need to invest in some replacement parts or look into why the existing pieces are malfunctioning and causing these sounds.
While vape popping is not all that unusual, it can get in the way of the experience of owning and using one of these devices. There are many reasons why a popping, bubbling, or crackling sound may occur.
Typically, the issues are not that serious and can be resolved by trial and error. If you have been noticing an increase in the popping and crackling sounds while you are vaping, try not to panic.
If you can, take some time and work through the list that we have created above. It may be a combination of the reasons listed above, or it could be a really quick fix – it is best to try a couple of the fast remedies that we mentioned above and see if you can get anywhere with it.
If you are willing to take a little time to work through these issues, we are sure that you will be able to find the reason why these sounds are coming from and that you will be able to fix them on your own in no time at all!
